Matilda
Authors: Roald Dahl , Sophie Dahl Illustrator: Quentin Blake
This is my favourite book ever.
I love Matilda and miss honey they are so lovely.  I love all the tricks that Matilda plays on all the naughty grown up.
I was so sad that her mummy and daddy were so horrid to get but loved how clever she was and understood more than her parents, the bit where she's does the sums quicker than her brother or father is brill.
Miss Trunchbull is horrid horrid and wicked.  But the things she does make you laugh but the lizard in the water and the chalk on the board are hilarious.
Love this book and the best ending ever.

The Twits
Author: Roald Dahl Illustrator: Quentin Blake
I love this book.
The twits is one of my favourite stories and when I first got it I read it with my mummy in one night.
Mr and Mrs twit are horrible but the tricks they play on each othe make me laugh. My favourite is the glass eye.
But th best bit is the big trick the monkeys play on the twits I laughed so much so much.

Stick Man

As always Julia Donaldson does not fail to deliever.  A wonderful,scary , sad but happy story with a lovely guest appearance at the end.  My children absolutely adore this story they love joining in as a read and the rhyming styles is brilliant.

Charlie Cook's Favourite Book
Author: Julia Donaldson Illustrator: Axel Scheffler
Not the usual story from Julia Donaldson but still good after a few reads.
The first time we read the book it felt a bit mixed up, didn't flow and a bit confusing.  However once you read it a few times it's a very clever and funny story.  My children love to look on each page to match up what's happening in the story and point all the characters out.  Worth reading a few times before deciding if you like it.
